Fulham close to signing striker Rolan

Fulham are close to completing the signing of Diego Rolan from Bordeaux.

The Whites have agreed a £5m deal with the French club for the 24-year-old striker.

Rolan is in London to meet with Fulham, who are hoping to convince him to join despite reports of Premier League interest in the Uruguay international.

He is yet to receive a serious offer from a top-flight club but reports say Newcastle are interested.

Rolan has scored 37 goals in over 100 appearances for Bordeaux.
